Digital Tools & Uses - 2020   >  


Extending the scientific purpose of its first edition (celebrated in 2018 at MSH Paris Nord), the Digital Tools & Uses Congress 2020 brings together researchers and specialists in the field of computer science, information, communication, and humanities in order to reflect about the uses and impact of digital artifacts in our society. Indeed, the fast pace at which our digital objects of study are transformed nowadays calls for an interdisciplinary dissection of our hypermediated world. From connected objects, to big data, to artificial intelligence, to digital culture and ideology, we need to develop novel approaches to understand our present networks, infrastructures, institutions, and representation models projected into our digital tools.

Consistent to its initial format, the DTUC’20 is organized in five different but interrelated tracks that facilitate discussion between participants. Thus, speakers and presenters are welcome to attend sessions and events organized by any track. Such format proved useful and fostered interdisciplinary collaboration in the first edition. We hope it will contribute to the advancement of human uses of computing from the Mediterranean, North African, and European context.
